Okay, I'm with a (decent sized, although probably small by NANOG
measures) ISP.  Why do I want to turn on multicast (what does it get me
that I don't have today)?  And if I want to turn it on, where can I find
the resources you mention?

These are meant as honest questions (not intended as rhetorical or
argumentative questions).  I want to understand why I should do this.
